They play nearly every '80s song you'd expect to hear requested by a frat boy on a night out with his buddies. And they do it with humor and the kind of mocking tone that only comes from people who appreciate the original product, but adore its eccentricities and flaws.
Hair Raid also pays plenty of attention to detail, doing choreographed jumps during the Van Halen song of the same name, and making sure the inflection in each tune is just as the original version had called for.
Again, it wouldn't ever be the kind of thing that some people might decide to do on a Thursday night, but you cant but smile and laugh along with everyone else. The crows was relaxed and enjoyed themselves, whether they were old enough to have appreciated the tunes when they were popular in an unironic way or not.
